Not everything has to be political!

mouseworks comments in a recent LJ entry that art should be basically subversive. She goes on to point out that she doesn't listen to country music except when she's at home in rural Virginia because it's "out of context when taken from its community".

To all of this, I am forced to ask: Why must everything be political? Why can't things just be fun - yes, even High Art? The world doesn't revolve around politics, and especially not subversive politics.

Then again, maybe people aren't patronizing High Art precisely because it thinks it has to be subversive, and they don't want subversive. I sure as hell don't.

I don't get to say this very often...

"Is there anything else we can do for you, Mr. Maynard?"
"Not until it's time for me to buy another car."
(laughing) "Thanks for doing business with Lexus Financial Services."

I'm about to go to the bank and get a cashier's check to send to Lexus for the final payment on the car. Wheeeeeee.
